first since another mentioned it, please don't use caps when posting, it is like yelling
second, since she isn't drinking the bottle, maybe give her an empty bottle, she is using it as a soothie.

Will she sleep if you give her water in bottle?
Also, keep trying the paci - Niko wouldn't take it until about 8-9mo old b/c he preferred boobi

Re: what can i do

if she is obviously taking the bottle just for comfort try switching to water instead of formula or BM. That way you can tell if she is just sucking to pacify or actually wanting the bottle but falling asleep. If she is just doing it to pacify she won't care that it is plain water. This is how I night weaned my DD, she just wanted to pacify, and after a couple nights of water she didn't get up to nurse. And the plain water is better for her teeth than formula, if she falls asleep w/ it in her mouth.

How old is she? I wouldn't worry too much if she is still very young, it is proabably for comfort. Try half water/half milk, then slowly increase the amount of water and decrease the milk until it is just water.

DS did that (only with a sippy). We just switched it to water and there wasnt much complaining. I think he wanted it for when he got thirsty at night KWIM? So he went a year or two going to bed with a sippy of water. But once he PL'ed we had to wean him of his water (otherwise he would wet the bed)
